to the division of power from obama in the white house, democrats in control of the senate, republicans of the house, but appearances can be deceiving, and in this case are. the most important reality of the election is that the republican effort to oppose anything and everything proposed by obama, almost like a parliamentary party was not rewarded. taking the debt ceiling hostage was rewarded. calling the obama health care plan which was there room only a few years earlier socialism was not rewarded. that means, they have to begin to rethink themselves. importantly, democrats will not automatically embrace the same tactics in the opposition. i think that was an important change that creates a

stepped in and provided birth control and abortions that perception was furthered by the absurd political ad of the obama campaign about a woman named julia who from cradle to grave depended on good old uncle sugar for everything from education, a job, healthcare, food, housing, and retirement. now, the women in my family and the women i know and work with, well, frankly, they are as good as any of the men that i know and work with i never thought of them as being helpless and unable to function without someone from the government or some man sheparding them through life. silly me. it just never occurred to me that i needed to see women as helpless. i guess that's why the liberals went stark rating linda blair with her head spinning circles and pea soup enraged at me. i'm not the one that you ought to be mad at. i was just saying what some of your heros have said. you see, if women aren't getting much more than birth control pills and abortion from this administration, sure not my fault. i don't support taking the life of babies anyway. and i'm okay if you want contraceptives, but since y
gun control and this idea that somehow obama might be able to make a run around the nra as he pushes for increased gun legislation. this makes it look like it is going to be really hard to do. >> i think, doug, in the category of great minds thinking alike, didn't you pick the same one for the same reasons? anything to add to that? >> a double must read. when i was a kid going to camp the nra gave you your little prize for being a safe shooter. now it is a rich, powerful lobby. it is interesting to look at how the use of extremism or lack of compromise really dialing up controversy as a tactic for creating a really powerful constituency. >> we are going to throw that up there. we had a long chat about powell and his comments today. joe, we always love your input. we are going to wrap it up right now. i want to thank all three of you. i'm alex witt. we'll see you from d.c. next weekend. hysema. hysema. spiriva helps control my copd symptoms by keeping my airways open for 24 hours. plus, it reduces copd flare-ups. spiriva is the only once-daily inhaled copd maintenance treatment that d

priorities in order, a one of the real problems with president obama is his priorities seem to be a mess. instead of talking about spending control, we're talking about gun control. instead of talking about solid, long-term economic solutions to help turn around the economy, we're talking about minting a trillion dollar coin. this is a president who seems to be sort of thumbing his nose at what really needs to be done in this next term. i mean, instead he's doing a power grab to secure his legacy. neil: you know, ilya, he's not the first president to try to go beyond an election and take what was a victory if terms of a -- in terms of a striking mandate. fdr did it, richard nixon tried it, george bush in his re-election tried it. are there differences here? anything noteworthy here? i mean, obviously, he's trying to get past a resistant congress to a lot of his proposals, and this styying of a lot of his proposals. are you worried about the way he's doing it? >> well, of course, i'm worried about it. this is why we have three branches of government. any president of any party at any time

, how much leeway as the obama administration have? you gave an answer which i do not find satisfactory. just enforce a controlled substance act. but they have to make some hard choices. how much room does the law give them? >> they will maneuver best they can. this shows that federalism is alive and well. the real action is that the states. states' rights is a tarnished concept in our country. even the term is coming to be embraced by a new generation as something that is positive because you see these controversial social issues being addressed at a state level. that is a good thing that is happening. what i would say is that, it is easy when you are a middle-aged man to talk about the rule of law. but we have had a worse moment than this. we have been through some tough times as a country. getting young people involved in the process is wonderful to see. i am very excited about the fact more people are engaged. i do not agree with all but but the debate will be better and i think it will force congress to become relevant again. >> that would be interesting. and and lifting thought on

9/11 we actively went after and our strategy was to eliminate and now with president obama it's to disengage. they see us disengaging. now, i would remind, you're right exactly why we went in there. now the reason why al-qaeda was able to locate was because of the taliban control. i don't think there's any doubt that the taliban are a significant force remaining. and al-qaeda has proven to be remarkably capable of regenerating itself with new leadership quite often. so you see a region and with enormous difficulties not to mention the threat of iran being, continuing on the path towards the acquisition of nuclear weapons. let me ask you about the president's choices for his cabinet. correct me if i'm wrong but i can't remember a time when the opposing party has opposed every single person that the president nominates for his cabinet. it's usually been the rule if the president's going to be in charge of the government, we have to give him the people he wants to run it. but republicans seem to be against every single person that he has nominated this time around, at least so fa
